Support Apple Watch (Sync)
Currently there is no support for sync on Apple Watch and no guidance on how to sync data between the apple watch and MongoDb Realm.
Previously the lack of websockets was listed as a reason for not supporting sync, but since watchOS 6.2 URLSessionWebSocketTask seems to provide the needed WebSocket.
Currently it is not clear how to build a watch app and sync data to the mobile app or to MongoDb Realm.
We are planning to launch a Watch app and this is critical for us.
This would so quickly become the best way to build watch applications, Apple's current approach is tedious and frustrating - you could provide a really good alternative for syncing data between watch and phone
I concur with support to make this happen for the WatchOS. Especially for the 8.0+ WatchOS version and its newest features.
Any progress on supporting Sync on WatchOS?
We installed the latest SDK but we're getting an error when data transfer is about to start:
"Connection to background transfer daemon invalidated"
Looks like Firebase is adding community support for it's realtime database based on web sockets. So I assume that this could be doable for MongoDb Realm as well? More info here:

Considering how spotty WatchConnectivity is. This feature would be huge for Apple Watch.
The watch counterpart of one of our apps is on standby until this is supported. I would happily contribute time to help build this.
